Center to support Ayurvedic center in Kerala

AyurvedicTHIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Centre has pledged financial support to set up a state-of-the-art Ayurvedic Clinical Research Centre in Kerala to help scientifically validate traditional systems of healing and medicine and integrate them with mainstream public healthcare delivery.

Union Minister for State for AYUSH Shripad Yesso Naik gave the assurance while announcing the new National Program of Ayurveda Inspired Discovery and Research, initiated by the Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology (RGCB) and the proposed National Ayurveda Expo 2015, to be held in April.
The RGCB is setting up a National Centre for Excellence for Ayurveda Inspired Discovery to lead research into efficacy mechanisms involved in Ayurvedic therapeutics.

At a function here, Naik said the Centre would fund the setting up of the clinical research facility at Konni in Pathanathitta district, as state Minister for Health and Family Welfare V S Sivakumar promised to provide 50 acres required for the project.

He also urged stakeholders in the AYUSH sector to intensify research and awareness to promote the Indian system of medicines in foreign countries.
The knowledge of 5000-year-old Ayurveda can be utilized for the benefit of the society through proper research and studies in the sector, he said.

“We should promote and propagate the Indian system of medicines and its benefits not only within the country but also abroad. AYUSH medicines are needed to be propagated globally. For that I urge AYUSH industry to promote research studies and come up with quality medicines,” he said. -PTI
